Reassurance for Charities: Racing Foundation’s commitment to existing grants

Wednesday, 25 March 2020

Statement from the Racing Foundation

In the current unprecedented period of uncertainty we understand the possible impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the charities we support, their staff and beneficiaries.

We would like to confirm that we currently have no plans to recall grants that have already been awarded.

We understand that it will be difficult for many of the projects, activities and research currently being delivered to meet their anticipated outcomes when staff and volunteers may not be available, events or meetings will be cancelled and services may need to be provided in different ways.

With this in mind we will help, where possible, by extending grant reporting dates, extending grant periods and consider releasing grant payments earlier than scheduled.

Racing Foundation Executives are able to work remotely from home and can be contacted as normal. Any charity with concerns regarding projects and activities being delivered with Racing Foundation funding should email

We are also working on the provision of a COVID-19 emergency support fund for our charity partners and will provide an update on this, shortly.

Some general advice and guidance is available for charities and can be accessed using the following links:
